It’s happening! A brand-new Crash Bandicoot game has been announced and is coming later this year. After the long hiatus the franchise took from 2010 to 2016, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remasters sold extremely well, as did Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. With that in mind, the announcement of a completely new title isn’t too surprising.
As it’s the first completely new Crash game to arrive since 2008’s Crash: Mind over Mutant, there’s a lot to go over here that should make Crash fans very happy. Here’s everything we know about Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is an all-new Crash Bandicoot game being developed by Toys for Bob and published by Activision. Toys for Bob previously did support work on Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, as well as leading the development of Spyro Reignited Trilogy. It’s clear Toys for Bob has plenty of experience working on older platforming IPs being brought into the modern age.
You can check out the reveal trailer for the game below.
Despite being the eighth mainline Crash Bandicoot game, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is a direct sequel to the third game, Crash Bandicoot: Warped, something that is joked about in the official trailer.
Neo Cortex and Dr. Nefarious Tropy have escaped prison and fractured time itself.
By finding four Quantum Masks, you’ll gain abilities allowing you to manipulate time in different ways.
There are multiple playable characters in addition to Crash and Coco.
You can swap between Crash and Coco at any point.
You can get the Totally Tubular skins for Crash and Coco if you buy the game digitally.
